Signs That Your Water Heater Needs Repair
When it comes to your water heater, be on the lookout for these signs of distress and call us immediately so our team can get to work and get your water heating system running efficiently. Warning signs to watch for include:
- Changes in water temperatures
- Water discoloration
- Lack of hot water
- Strange noises
It’s important to address any of these issues promptly to avoid costly repairs and potential health concerns. Goettl is here to provide quality water heater repair services for you if any of these issues occur.
Changing Water Temperatures
Changing water temperatures are one of the most common signs indicating a need for water heater repair services. This typically happens when built-up sediment or mineral deposits accumulate, over time, in your water heater.
The sediment will then act as insulation for the heating element, leading to heating element malfunctions like fluctuations in water temperatures or the hot water supply running out faster than usual. In some cases, the sediment will shift around, causing cracking or popping noises to come from the water heater.
If you notice water discoloration, this may be a sign that dangerous contaminants are in your water supply. The water may be discolored due to rust, sediment, or other harmful particles in the water.
This can pose a serious risk to the health of anyone in your home who drinks the water. In some cases, water discoloration can also be a sign of corroded pipes. This is a problem because they may release heavy metals, like lead, into your water supply. If you notice any water discoloration, you must call a plumbing professional right away to get your water heater repaired quickly.
Hot Water Runs Out Too Fast
If your hot water is running out faster than it usually does, this may be caused by a malfunctioning heating element. Water heaters contain one or more heating elements that are responsible for heating the water.
If either of these heating elements malfunction, it can cause the water to heat unevenly or not at all, leading to a lack of hot water. Additionally, a malfunctioning heating element can cause the water to heat too slowly, resulting in your hot water running out faster than it should.
When the water heater has to work harder to keep up with the demand, this can cause the remaining hot water to be depleted faster than it normally would. This is another sign that you are in need of quality water heater repair services.
Strange Noises Coming from the Water Heater
It’s normal for a water heater to make some noises when they’re running, but if you’re hearing strange sounds like banging, popping, or rumbling, it could be a problem that needs immediate attention from experienced professionals. These noises may be caused by several issues:
Built-Up Sediment and Debris
A built-up sediment layer is formed when minerals in your water supply settle at the bottom of your water heater tank. Water is trapped under the sediment and, when heated, can create steam bubbles that make loud popping or cracking noises as they escape. This can also cause your water heater to work less efficiently, increasing energy consumption and the risk of water heater failure.
Rumbling or banging sounds coming from your water heater could be due to pressure fluctuations within the system. These fluctuations are caused by a malfunctioning pressure relief valve, which is designed to release excess pressure from the water heater. When this valve fails, pressure can build up within the tank, causing the rumbling noise. This is a serious issue that can lead to tank damage or even an explosion if it’s not quickly taken care of by plumbing professionals.
Some noises, such as humming or whining, are a sign of a failing component like the heating element or the circulating pump. If you don’t address this issue quickly, it may lead to further damage or even a complete breakdown of the water heater.
Leaks may be caused by a few issues:
- A corroded tank
- Loose connections
- Failing pressure relief valve
It’s critically important to get any leaks repaired as soon as possible. Ignoring water heater leaks can lead to more extensive damage, increased water and energy bills, and potential health risks from microbial growth. To protect your home and avoid more costly repairs, call a professional water heater repair company like Goettl to get the problem fixed.
